[Q/A] 3.5mm audio / mic PS4 problem
« on: 12:07 AM - 06/12/18 »
Hello Guys,

Maybe one of you can help me out.
Just got my new XIM APEX working like a charm but i got one problem.

When trying to connect my earplugs with mic in my controller i do not get any sound and cant use the mic. is there a fix?

I know the xbox controller does have some problems with it but cant find any solution for my ps4.

( my earplugs do work when not using the APEX )

Welcome to the community. APEX supports chat on PS4 when using a slim controller, unfortunately you can't use the controller for chat if using a non slim controller. You could either upgrade to a slim controller or try one of the options below.

You can use a USB Headset, a Stereo Headset and Y cable connected to a USB Sound Card, or Sony's Bluetooth Headset. Here are some suggestions that may work.


USB Sound Card with Y cable included.
